I just got this box last Friday and after a whirlwind trip to Hong Kong and back, I’m so glad to come back to these babies!
You can buy this individually or in a box.
A set of 4 premium combo (like mine which comes with a poly-form box, 2 cold packs and a handle tote) is RM98.
Individually is RM32 for maoshanking and RM22 for each of D101, D13, D24. Else you can opt for any combination of D101, D13, D24 for RM88.
Online order is via email – [email protected] and last call is 18th Sept 2013 so be quick! 😀
The durian snowskin by Taste Better is pure durian pulp encased in thick snow skin. The skin itself isn’t flavoured but as you chew, you’ll realize that the taste of the durian would have somewhat permeated into the skin and thus imparting some of the durian flavour .
The mooncakes are made fresh daily to ensure consistency and freshness. Each and every one of them are HANDMADE and thus the skin may be considered thicker in comparison to other brands but rest assured that the durian core is standardized weight so you get what you pay for. 🙂
Taste Better durian snowskin mooncakes are all sold frozen.
REAL durian flesh are used and as you may be aware, durian flesh turns sour swiftly if not preserved well. Since no additives are used, the best way to keep these mooncakes fresh is to freeze them as soon as they are made.
The mooncakes are stored under -20. Production are in small batches to ensure quality and taste. Therefore advance order is encouraged.
The mooncakes are packed in polyform box and 2 cold packs to retain the temperature for short distance travel. If the mooncakes are not consumed immediately, you can always keep them in the freezer (like I did til I got back from HK) and thaw it for 5 – 10mins when you want to savour them.
Once it has soften enough, just cut and enjoy! 😀
I’m a durian lover so I enjoy both fresh durians as well as durian related products as long as it’s made well and are made from the better grade of durians.
For Taste Better durian snowskins, my top pick goes to the D101. It has good complexity; strong bitter taste with sweet nuances. Exactly how I prefer my durians. Funnily enough the MSK is milder but creamiest of all four.
The D13 is too mild in taste and thus I didn’t like it as much.
The D24 came second to the D101 – bitter as well with a nice, strong pungency.
My first experience with the brand Taste Better was when I was in Melaka. I bought a box of their pineapple tarts for my “Best Pineapple Tarts in Melaka” research because it was recommended by friend. You can read about their pineapple tarts HERE.
But their signature products are the durian soft serve and durian puffs. I was too full for the soft serve but I figured that I can manage one durian puff. 🙂
Daniel was with me so he decided to try one too!
Men being men, he popped his into his mouth at ONE go. I had to take a picture of the cavity of the puff so I ate mine in 2 bites!
The durian puffs are seriously good. And I just discovered that Taste Better durian puffs are available in KL! Right in a shopping mall too. In fact, a few shopping malls.
